THE INKEY LIST Retinol – New beginnings

This blogpost uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.   The first review of the year feels a little like the first snow. Everything looks different, feels different, and you are suddenly very conscious about the footprints you are going to leave.     Well, after the first hours of winter wonderland everything will turn into the same soggy mess it was before, slightly grey, really wet and clammy. At least this is true for German first snow, so I guess it will be true for this German Beauty Blog as…

Monthly Recap – Blog Post Topics December 2018

And just like that, another month has passed, and with this, 2018 comes to an end. Did it drag on? Did it fly by? I have heard both. But I am not here today to reflect on the year that passed, no. I want to talk about the month that ends today, my hectic and sugar filled December.     Although maybe hectic isn´t the right word (sugar filled is, no denying that). Maybe eventful is more fitting, given that I thoroughly enjoyed every event I attended, Christmas related or…

THE INKEY LIST Q10 – Understatement

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I admit, most company claims make me roll my eyes to the back of my head. Products allegedly shaving years of your face, singlehandedly tightening the skin around your jaw line so you look like your teenage self while transforming your undereyes from “Tired mom on a Monday” to “Bombshell on a tropical vacation” – I have seen it all.     What I haven´t seen that often though is a product that comes with reasonable claims that are, actually, an understatement! Like,…

My One 24 h Anti-Aging System – AD

Advertisment: This blog post contains paid for content. All opinions are my own. Anzeige: Dieser Blogpost enthält Werbung. Meine Meinung wurde dadurch nicht beeinflusst. We all know I love trying new skincare brands, so when I got the opportunity to work with the German skincare brand “My One” by Dr. Klein on the release of their new My One 24 h Anti-Aging System, I jumped at the chance.     This blog post will give you an overview over the products, prices and claims, it is not an in-depth review…

THE INKEY LIST Collagen Serum – Names

This blogpost contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Unicorn tears – if a brand decides to name their products like that, they lost me as a customer for sure. I prefer a less romantic, more to the point approach, which is why I get along so very well with The Ordinary products: The name is what is inside the bottle. Fancy? No. But easy to work with for sure!     I recently learned the hard way though that seemingly straight forward names can be misleading! You see, when I…

Winter skincare tips – How to get glowing skin in winter

This blog post may contain affiliate links and *PR-Samples. Please read disclaimer. After what seems to have been the shortest fall in history, the cold and harsh winds are upon us. Cold and harsh are of course widely exaggerated if I compare my comfortable home in Heidelberg, Germany to where my brother in law lives, up North in Norway, but it is still cold enough for my skin to need special treatment.     So while I take care of body and soul with cozy knits and hot chocolate (a…

Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm – Late to the party

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I don´t always publish my reviews “on time”, but this has to be the biggest delay ever. Seriously, I have been planning to write about the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm for more than six years!     Six years? Yes! See, like most of us I debated whether or not I should start a blog for quite a bit before publishing my first post. And even before I had decided on a blog name, I was sure to write about the…

Instytutum Skincare Rebranded – Is it still as good?

Products mentioned in this post are PR-Samples. Please read disclaimer. It is always bitter sweet if a brand decides to invent themselves new and reformulate all their products, isn’t it? If you have been around here for a little while, you might have heard me talk about Instytutum. This Swiss brand, founded by Natalia Derkach (a fellow doctor) claims to offer “result driven skincare” and presents itself with sleek, almost clinical packaging.     You know I am all about skincare giving results, and I found quite a few products…

Monthly Recap – Blog Post Topics November 2018

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. November is done and dusted, and tomorrow will be the day I get the boxes with Christmas decoration from the basement and start randomly putting them on available surface spots. Not kidding here, I am a lost cause when it comes to decorating, no matter how much Inspiration Boards I have on Pinterest. But I am making an effort, for the kids mostly, as I want them to embrace the spirit of the season.     While we get all festive…

THE INKEY LIST Caffeine Serum – Are you extra?

  Ths blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer Now if the use of a separate eye cream is already controversial, how about using a specific serum before that? I can already see online wars raging over unexpecting blogs, fighting for wether or not the extra expense is worth it or just, well, extra.     I won´t take a stand on that today (you know I even deny the need for a separate moisturizer on my skin most of the year), but instead just present you with some…
